In order to control Cancer effectively, it is essential to define the role of the host immune system in responding to the presence of growing tumour. For the most part the immune system is virtually oblivious to the existence of malignant cells developing within an organ. Understanding how immune reactivity can be activated to recognize a malignant process and the mechanism of how growing tumour cells can be eliminated immunologically is of major importance to the clinician.
